Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are well, how can it be Thursday already? Well this week is just going to be a blur, as you can imagine the last couple of days have been spent mostly on the phone, sorting things for Mum, they new Covid rules have made things even harder. We have a lot to work through but we hope to get it all sorted as soon as possible.
I started making this card on Tuesday and I managed to sit and finish it between calls yesterday, I have always found crafting a great distraction, you can still think about things but have your mind busy at the same time and unlike some things you can pick up and put it down as you please.
I used Sue Wilson Hexagons to create the base of the card and the poinsettia's are Heartfelt Creations 'Sparkling Poinsettia' I wanted a hammered or textured card for the base but the nearest I had was watercolour card but I think it works ok. The poinsettia I stamped onto parchment and die cut and layered, I did the same with the Sue Wilson Holly Branch, the Merry Christmas is from Ann Marie Designs. I finished the card by adding pearls to the centre of the flowers and added a few to the Holly, it doesn't really show in the photo but I added 'Wink of Stella' clear sparkle to the petals and sentiment. I kind of like the all white look, although it isn't 'traditional'.
Please stay safe my lovely friends, this dreadful pandemic seems to be gaining momentum once again, although hardly surprising with the behaviour of some people! (soap box 🗃 away)!
Love and hugs to all of you,
